General Information: Isolation: Anoxic muds of Mono Lake California; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. Bacillus selenitireducens MLS-10 was isolated from alkaline, hypersaline, arsenic-rich mud from Mono Lake, California. This organism can reduce arsenate, selenate, and selenite, making it a potential bioremediation agent. Bacillus selenitireducens produces intracellular and extracellular granules of elemental selenium when grown on selenite. The respiratory arsenate reductase has been purified, and is able to function at high pH and alkalinity.
